Civilization VI romped out last night with its own alternate histories but for folks who know that history and the world were actually shaped by the Old Ones, Total War: Warhammer [official site] is still kicking. Last night brought the release of two new DLC bits, one free and one paid. Everyone will get to play with Wurrzag Da Great Green Prophet, while folks who slap down £6 can play as the Night Goblin warlord Skarsnik or the Dwarven king Belegar Ironhammer. I’d like to see Ghandi deal with a herd of Squigs.
Wurrzag is a new Legendary Lord playable in the campaign or multiplayer, bringing his own unique skills and quests along. The pack also brings three new units for the Warriors of Chaos roster: Feral Manticores, Marauder Horsemasters, and Aspiring Champions. This pack is free from Steam.
The new paid DLC is The King and the Warlord, adding Belegar Ironhammer, True King of The Eight Peaks and Skarsnik, Warlord of The Eight Peaks as new Legendary Lords. They’ve got their own quests, starting positions, campaign bonuses, items, and all that, and also bring new buildings and units. Yes, absolutely these include Squig Herds and Night Goblin Squig Hoppers.
The King and the Warlord is £5.99/7,49€/$7.99 on Steam.
Oh, and Grombrindal, The White Dwarf is coming on October 28th if you’re up for a spot of #brand #engagement. He’ll arrive free for everyone in 2017 but you can get a card with a key to redeem him by buying issue 3 of White Dwarf Magazine or by popping into a Games Workshop & Warhammer shop and asking for one (while stocks last etc). Don’t do it, obviously. Don’t go into Games Workshop. This is how they get you. They lure you in with a legendary dwarf and before you know it, you’ve bought a few little men and a couple pots of paint. Six months later, you’re found dead beneath a collapsed shelf which once contained a 300-strong army, whose teensy swords and spears left you bleeding from a thousand cuts.
